Locations for offshore wind turbines missing

The government has ambitions to double the amount of ocean wind in Denmark, but has not done anything to initiate a screening of the Danish ocean area to figure out where to begin. This is criticized by Dansk Rederier and other business organizations.

The current energy agreement wants to double the amount of ocean wind in Denmark over the next three to four years. The ambition is praised by Danske Rederier, Danske Havne, Dansk Energi and Vindmølleindustrien, but in a statement in Børsen, the organizations' directors point out that nothing will happen if the government is not going to investigate where the turbines are to be located.

"It is pleasing that there seems to be broad political support for further development of offshore wind from 2020-2030. The important decision must be taken after the new year when a new energy agreement is to be concluded. Before that, however, there is a crucial task to be solved.

We are missing a screening of the Danish ocean area, which clearly answers the question of future wind turbines. Because it takes many years to complete an offshore park. In November 2016, the government announced the screening, but the work is still underway. "

And if it does not happen, the energy agreement cannot, on an informed basis, give priority to the proper expansion of offshore wind.

Behind the debate is Bjørn B. Christiansen, Director of Danske Havne, Lars Aagaard, CEO, Dansk Energi, Troels Ranis, Branch Director, DI Energi, Anne Steffensen, Managing Director, Danish Shipowners’ Association, Jan Hylleberg, Managing Director, Vindmølleindustrien.
